One of the soap operas of the summer is nearing its end. Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz is about to join Chelsea. The journalist Fabrizio Romano has reported that the agreement is completely closed and that the London team will pay 80 million fixed euros plus 20 variables, divided into a block of 10 million for regular participation in the Champions League and another 10 for titles in the Premier League, FA Cup or the Champions League. All this adds up to a total of 100 million euros, which will make the German the most expensive signing of Chelsea and the second in the history of the Premier League, only behind Paul Pogba and his 105 million.

It is believed that the player will have a salary of 100 million euros spread over the five years of the contract, but it is not something confirmed yet.

The signing of Kai Havertz was being one of the soap operas of the summer, but for weeks it seemed clear that the future of the German was going to be linked to Stamford Bridge.

In addition, on the defensive plot, a great weakness of a Chelsea that has allowed 54 goals in the Premier League this year, important reinforcements are also expected and Sky Sports indicates that the agreement with Ben Chilwell, Leicester's left back, is also almost closed. Another name that sounds to reinforce the defense is the veteran Thiago Silva, recently runner-up in the Premier League with PSG.
